Evgeny Pavlov, PhD

International Team of Scientists, Including NYU Dentistry's Evgeny Pavlov, Shed Light on Parkinson's Disease Biology

06/18/2018

Parkinson's disease is a devastating neurodegenerative disease in which nerve cells in the brain gradually die. For years, researchers have known that Parkinson's disease is associated with a build-up of alpha-synuclein protein inside brain cells.

Alpha-synuclein has a normal function, but when it starts to misfold and clump together, it causes nerve cells to die. How these alpha-synuclein protein clumps cause nerve cells to die has been a mystery.

The National Institute on Aging of the National Institutes of Health has awarded Xin Li, PhD, a $435,875 grant to study—and potentially prevent—bone loss related to aging.

Osteoporosis and age-related fractures have become major public health issues in
the US, with more than 1.5 million age-related osteoporotic fractures occurring annually. However, the mechanism of how aging-related changes in cellular metabolism lead to compromised bone health is still elusive.

Easy Access Dental Care to Kids in Foster Care

NYU College of Dentistry Partnering with NYC Administration for Children's Services to Provide On-site, Easy Access Dental Care to Kids in Foster Care

05/2/2018

The Administration for Children's Services (ACS) is partnering with NYU College of Dentistry to provide dental screenings to children in foster care onsite at the Nicholas Scoppetta Children's Center via a mobile dental care program.

As part of this partnership, NYU College of Dentistry will offer weekly, 30-minute educational sessions on oral health at the Children's Center, followed by screenings and restorative treatment (fillings). Children requiring additional treatment will be referred to and seen on expedited appointments at NYU College of Dentistry. As the partnership progresses, the goal is to provide similar dental services for the rest of ACS' programs through NYU where appropriate.
